Guns N' Roses' "November Rain" Breaks 1 Billion Views On YouTube

July 16, 2018

Guns N' Roses have been on a killing streak ever since Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan ended their nearly two-decade-long feud back in 2016.

They're closing in on grossing $500 million from their Not In This Lifetime tour according to Forbes, and they are the first '90s band with a music video totalling over 1 billion views on YouTube.

First uploaded on December 25th, 2009, "November Rain" is also the first music video filmed before YouTube's creation to reach the milestone. According to the video's metrics, it has received approximately 560,000 views a day in 2017.

GNR's 2nd most popular upload is their official "Sweet Child O Mine" video, which is quickly closing in on 700 million views, and is will likely reach the 1 billion mark in no time.
